Dover Street Restaurant & Jazz Bar

DO NOT go to this place if what you are expecting is a nice civilised meal. This is not the place to go if you want nice food and wine in a relaxed atmosphere! Upon arrival we were suitably impressed, a helpful waiter helped us choose our meals and wine from the menus. Our starters arrived and there were nice enough. Then it started, we found that we were seated in the middle of 5 large groups of girls on hen nights! We could not hear ourselves speak over the noise (not music!) never mind the person sat across from you! Our main course arrived and what can only be decribed as a frozen chicken kiev and hard potatoes - not what you expect for £17.00! Needless to say we were not impressed. We complained to the manager who just removed our plates and walked off - probably because he could not hear what we were saying due to all the noise!! We requested that the waitress bring the manager back over, he eventually came back where due to his response (shrugged shoulders - again possibly because he couldnt hear us!) we left without paying our bill.

There was probably only 3 men in the entire place, the women looked like they were all on hen parties. If you are looking for a good laugh with your girl friends and are not too bothered about the standard of the food then this is the place for you, im sure you'd have a fab time. If you are looking for a place to have a nice meal with your loved ones and to enjoy some live music then forget it!

Unfortunately I can not comment on the live music as we didnt stay long enough - mind you you probably wouldnt be able to hear it anyway!!!!
